Massimiliano Allegri and Juventus have reportedly decided not to sell Kenan Yildiz in the January transfer window despite interest from Liverpool and Arsenal.

Yildiz has attracted interest from many big European clubs, but according to, the Old Lady are unwilling to sell the 18-year-old Turkish striker in the winter transfer window.

There were reports that Juventus were willing to listen to offers in the region of €40m for the former Bayern Munich U17 starlet, but according to Calciomercato, this is no longer the case as Max Allegri and the club management have decided to keep Yildiz in Turin.

The report claims Juventus snubbed an €8m bid from Fenerbahçe last summer, but the striker’s value has drastically raised over the last few months. Yildiz had made his Serie A debut in August in an away 3-0 win at Udinese and scored his first international goal in November against Germany.

Juventus must boost their transfer budget for a big-money signing in midfield in January, but apparently, they won’t get the money from Yildiz’s sale. With the Turkish striker expected to stay in Turin, Matias Soulé and Samuel Iling-Junior will likely be sold to raise funds for a new signing next month.
